The Apocalypse Peaks (77°23′S 160°51′E / 77.383°S 160.850°E / -77.383; 160.850Coordinates: 77°23′S 160°51′E / 77.383°S 160.850°E / -77.383; 160.850) are a group of peaks with a highest point of 2,360 metres (7,740 ft), standing east of Willett Range and between Barwick Valley and Balham Valley, in Victoria Land, Antarctica. The peaks were so named by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (VUWAE) (1958–59) because the peaks are cut by talus slopes which gives them the appearance of the "Riders of the Apocalypse." The peaks lie on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare.
